Published on Jan 30, 2020 in Indoor Air Quality
During the winter months, the air in your home can get stuffy, when all you want is fresh, breathable air. Luckily, you can learn how to purify air in your home – by reading the article below. Follow these simple steps and you are sure to have purified air this winter.
How To Purify Air
You may be thinking that learning how to purify air is a long and complicated process. Don’t worry, it’s not. Ready to get started? Here’s what to do:
1. Ensure Good Ventilation
Good ventilation means that air must flow freely throughout your home. If it is contained, then it gets stuffy – and impure. Keep your windows open during the day to allow the fresh air from outside to come in. If you are home, you can also keep your doors open.
If you happen to live in a crowded area with high traffic, then you will want to keep your windows open at a time when the streets are quieter; this can be early in the morning or late at night. Ideally, there must be as fresh air as possible seeping in.
2. Maintain The Air Conditioner
This is one we often neglect – but it is an essential aspect of indoor air cleaning. Your air conditioner’s filter will gather dust over time. You may even find pollen on occasion in your filter. Be sure to clean them regularly and to replace them when needed. And be sure to have your air conditioner maintained by a professional regularly.
3. Clean Your Fabrics
Fabrics can often collect dust mites. This ranges from your clothing to your bedsheets, to your sofa. If these are not cleaned regularly then the dust mites which gather will be toxic to your air. Even leaving the clothes outside in the laundry room for a couple of hours can attract these dust mites. If your pets – especially dogs – jump on your bed or sofa, then these will have to be cleaned regularly. Make sure your fabrics are cleaned on a frequent basis.
4. Plant Away!
Plants serve as more than a decoration in your home. Plants are one of the best ways to ensure improved air quality in your home. They rid the air of toxins as well as provide a greater supply of oxygen. Among the many plants you can buy for your home, the most popular are: Bamboo Palm, English Ivy, and Gerbera Daisy. Go to your local gardening store to inquire about plants ideal for improved air quality.
5. Good Smells
Finally, you want your home to smell good. But wait! You have to make sure that the fragrances you use do not emit unwanted toxins. In fact, you actually want to avoid fragrances altogether. Fragrances often have unwanted chemicals that pollute the air.
Make your home smell better using the natural way: by cleaning your dishes with lemon, by prohibiting smoking indoors, by avoiding any product with an aerosol spray.
